Jo Wood tells Ronnie: 'It's over'
Heartbroken Jo Wood has reportedly told her errant husband Ronnie that their 23-year marriage is over.
Jo has been left reeling after Ronnie spent the last 10 days holed up in Ireland with a 20-year-old Russian girl enjoying a booze-fuelled time.
Ronnie has enjoyed huge success with his paintings, and has been drawing a portrait of Ekaterina Ivanova, but reports have suggested that business has turned to pleasure.
A source close to Jo told The Sun: ‘It’s sunk in he’s had an affair and she feels betrayed.
‘They had such a strong marriage. He’s thrown it all away with his stupid behaviour.’
Ronnie, whose battle with alcohol has been well-documented, is due to fly home from his Co. Kildaire retreat today, and has vowed to check straight in to rehab.
But friends are urging him to talk to Jo first, who has been further upset that her husband met the cocktail waitress in an escort club.
The source said: ‘Jo has been through the mill. She thought he was only drinking buddies with the girl and she was hanging around him for free drinks.
‘Now everything has surfaced about how they met and Jo has hit rock bottom.’
Meanwhile, Ekaterina’s mum insists: ‘There is nothing between them. She is posing for him – nothing more.’
